Upcoming 3-day program promises only good news

Jehovah's Witnesses, Press Release

In a world where bad news endlessly streams on social media, TV and radio, a three-day live event open to the public will deliver only good news.

One of the largest convention organizations in the world returns to the Wright State University Nutter Center in Dayton with a much-anticipated motivational program to comfort and encourage the public.

Jehovah’s Witnesses will present their 2024 “Declare the Good News”! convention on four  weekends: June 21-23; June 28-30; July 5-7; and July 19-21. The free event is expected to draw close to 20,000 attendees to the city – fueling the city’s economy with local spending at stores, hotels and restaurants.

“We look forward to inviting the community to our annual conventions,” said Ethan Learned, local spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “These days we can feel like we’re drowning in a flood of bad news. The good news featured as the theme of this year’s convention is our lifeline. These three days of good news are just what we need in these challenging times to remind us that there’s real hope things will get better.”  

The “Declare the Good News”! convention will present Bible-based videos, discourses and interviews on topics such as:
• “Everlasting Good News” -- In What Sense?
• Use the Good News to Defeat Bad News
• Why We Don’t Fear Bad News.

Saturday spotlights a baptism of candidates from surrounding communities, while a two-part video feature will captivate the audience on Friday and Saturday mornings. Prior to each convention, local congregations will engage in a campaign to invite community members to this free event.

Last year, nearly 13 million people attended more than 6,000 three-day conventions worldwide.
